Mumbai beat Bangalore in a table-topper clash to go 1st on the points table. A look at all the statistical highlights from Match 48 of IPL 2020:

Highest middle-overs (7-15) score for Royal Challengers Bangalore

Royal Challengers Bangalore batting unit is undeniably one of the most explosive. Still, there lies an area of concern this IPL, which is their middle-overs batting. Prior to this match, RCB batsmen had scored at a run-rate of 6.8 in overs 7-15, whereas no other team bats under 7. However, today a different approach was witnessed. After a perfect start during the Powerplay, Devdutt Padikkal continued the attack against Mumbai Indians. Yet again, the RCB skipper, Virat Kohli was slow to start off. However, this time he couldn’t convert his slow start. After Kohli departed in the 12th over, the arrival of AB de Villiers and Padikkal’s collective aggression helped RCB score 75 runs in the nine overs. This was their highest middle-overs score this season.

100th Wicket for Jasprit Bumrah in IPL

In every crunch situation, there is one go-to bowler in every team, for Mumbai Indians it has been Jasprit Bumrah. At the start of the 12th over, RCB were in a position to post a 180+ total, but the introduction of Bumrah resulted in the prized scalp of Kohli. With that wicket, Bumrah reached his 100th IPL wicket and he became the third MI bowler to achieve this feat. What makes it more fascinating is, his first IPL wicket and the 100th both were Kohli. Hence, he became the first bowler in IPL to dismiss the same batsman as his first wicket and the 100th. Bumrah is also the second youngest bowler (26y and 326d) in IPL to achieve 100 wickets. Piyush Chawla at the age of 26y and 117d is the youngest to achieve this feat in IPL.

Second highest score by an uncapped batsman for Royal Challengers Bangalore

Padikkal has been one of the most exciting young prospects of IPL this season. After scoring a bunch of fifties in the first five matches, the left-handed batsman had bogged down a bit with a few scores of thirties that weren’t converted. Against MI on October 28th, in the absence of Aaron Finch, Padikkal once again was a class apart. His knock of 74 is the second highest score by an uncapped RCB batsman in IPL. Manish Pandey’s century in 2009 before making it to the Indian team, stays as the highest. Padikkal has notched up 417 runs already this season, which is the second-most by an uncapped Indian in his debut season of IPL. Shreyas Iyer in 2015 had amassed 437 runs, which is the most by an Indian.

Suryakumar Yadav registers his joint-highest score in IPL

It still remains a mystery as to why this lad from Mumbai hasn’t made it to the Indian squad in the limited-over format. Time and time, season by season, Suryakumar Yadav’s game is reaching different heights. Against a formidable bowling line-up of RCB, Surya’s strokeplay was sublime. Though, wickets were falling at the other end, it didn’t hamper his aggressive intent, a strike rate of 183.7 is proof of it. Surya, brought up his half-century off 29 balls, which is his joint fastest in IPL. More than that, he made sure that he stayed till the end and took MI over the ropes. His unbeaten 79 is his personal best in the IPL. On a special note, he just loves to bat in Abu Dhabi. In eight innings at this venue, Surya has racked up 335 runs at an average of 55.8 and a strike rate of 160.8. He has three 50+ scores to his name as well in Abu Dhabi.
